Pastor Commits Suicide Week After Wife’s Death

A pastor of the Foursquare Gospel Church Ghana Life Cathedral committed suicide Saturday evening and blamed it on a former roommate.

Pastor Kwabena Bonsu who was believed to be in his late thirties hanged himself in his single room apartment at Kasoa Chinese near Tuba Junction in Accra. He accused one Esther for his death.

The sad event comes exactly a week after his wife died. The wife, who was a beautician (hair dresser), is currently in the morgue. They were survived by a six-month old baby.

A suicide note supposedly written by the deceased, which police personnel stationed at Kasoa Tollbooth found in his room, read: “I Love My wife. Esther killed us. Why Esther? No Peace For You.” gathered from some residents that Esther used to live with the deceased couple in the single room but had to leave the place over financial disagreement.

An eyewitness Eric Akoto, who is a gospel musician and radio presenter at PINK FM, told that he was informed that the man owed the accused GHC700 whilst the wife was also indebted to the same lady to the tune of GHC300.

He said the man’s wife started complaining of stomachache days after Esther left the apartment but could not survive it.

Pastor Bonsu was also found dead around 6pm today when someone he apparently bought something from was returning his change. He used a sponge joined to a rope to commit suicide in his porch.
